CHARLOTTE AMALIE, St Thomas, USVI: Governor Kenneth E. Mapp and Albert Bryan Jr. will face off in a runoff election, after the respective teams failed to collect the required 50 plus 1 percent of the votes needed for victory.

The runoff election has always been predicted by political observers, pointing to Mr. Mapp’s strength on St. Croix and his weakness on St. Thomas, while Mr. Bryan’s strength from the onset has been in St. Thomas.

Bryan Leading

Mr. Bryan is going into the runoff with the lead, according to the unofficial results as of 9:48 p.m.

“No questions the territory has spoken in two strong voices,”  Mr. Mapp said at his St. Croix headquarters tonight. He said St. Thomas was clear in its decision, while St. Croix spoke resoundingly as well.

In his remarks, Mr. Bryan said Virgin Islanders saw value in changing course for a better future. Both candidates said they would be seeking to forge bounds the candidates who did not succeed in the runoff.
